We drove our RV to the end of a road and parked at a trailhead. You can do a short hike just to the bridge over the river-where everyone takes the famous bridge photo or you can move on farther. The day we were there we had little competition for the trail. Make sure you watch your footing as it... More

Easy hike around 2 miles from the campground. Narrow pathway that is not wheelchair accessible. Falls were beautiful and serene. Along the way, the kids stopped to played in a babbling brook for about an hour. We'll definitely be back.

We did the hike to Sol Duc Falls and it was worth the effort, it really is a short easy hike so anyone can see the falls which makes it a bit crowded but worth the journey. It is an impressive falls that you can climb down onto the rocks for a picture from the nearby bridge, great photo op... More

We love seeing waterfalls & this one was no exception. The mist coming off the falls & the power of this water fall was pretty intense! Definitely a must-see if you are in the Sol Doc area. The hike to the falls wasn't super strenuous & it was a peaceful wall through the woods.

Sol Duc Falls is breathtaking in a very good way. It was a very easy hike to the location - less than one mile from the trail head. The walk a long the way was very beautiful and there are plenty of great photo opportunities along the way. If you are a photographer - stop by a small stream where... More

Nice 3-mile hike from Sol Duc Hot Springs to the Falls. Don't bring food with you, though -- we saw a mama bear and cubs alongside the trail. We joined another group of hikers to make more noise so the bears wouldn't bother us, and they didn't. Once we got to the Falls, we were very happy we went all... More

There is a stunning variety of scenery and plant life to go along with the falls. The hike in isn't bad and it is worth the effort. Olympic has lots to offer and this is one of the most popular sites for a good reason. The air is amazing, too.

My husbanding I travelled to Sol Duc to see the water falls. The walk was worth it as the fall was beautiful.

If you have the opportunity, this is a great hike through some beautiful rain forest. There are 2 options for the hike - you can start at the campground and it's about 3 +/- miles one way, or if you drive to the end of the Sol Duc Road (the one you came in on) you'll find a very large... More
